Coahulla Creek boys cross country runs to a region title

The Coahulla Creek High School boys cross country team gave the school its first sports region championship in perhaps the most dominating fashion possible.

Led by senior Sadoth Fraire in first with a time of 17 minutes, 3 seconds, the Colts swept the top four places in the Region 5-3A championships to win the region title over host Cartersville at Dellinger Park.

Fraire was followed in order by Walt Douglas (17:43), Missael Fraire (17:52) and Timothy Hooper (17:55). The other counting score for the Colts came with Oscar Andres’ 12th-place finish (18:45).

It turned into a double celebration as the Lady Colts finished third to give both teams a berth in the Class 3A state championships on Tuesday in Carrollton.

“I expected a good showing, but that went over my expectations for sure,” Coahulla Creek cross country coach Josh Deslattes said. “They got real focused after (last week’s) ‘Big Harry’ Race. They wanted to win and knew they were in position to win and the gun fired and they never looked back.”

Like Deslattes, champion Fraire — who set a personal record five seconds faster than the one he set last week — also expected a good showing but had no idea that he would see nothing but his teammates when he looked back crossing the finish line.

“I was very surprised,” Sadoth Fraire said. “That was what we have always wanted, and it came true. I am really proud of the team for today’s race. We got what we wanted. That was our best race of the year.”

Cartersville’s boys finished second, but a team total was not available.

Morgan King was the top finisher for the Lady Colts with a time of 22:05 to finish in fourth. Other scorers for Coahulla Creek were Rachel Cherry (12th, 23:14), Bethany Goodwin (15th, 23:35), Evelyn Botello (16th, 23:37) and Ationza Smith (26th, 24:32). Cartersville won the title with 38 points, followed by Adairsville (69) and Coahulla Creek (73).

North Murray finished in eighth place for both boys and girls, but individual results were not reported by The Daily Citizen’s deadline.

  • 7on7 championship game6.jpg Bringing in the best

    When high school football coaches look for events to take their teams to during the summer, they are looking for three things — top competition, organization and hospitality.
    For The Daily Citizen’s Southeastern 7-on-7 Championship, the Dalton community and local business leaders take care of the latter. The tournament officials work tirelessly to provide the organization. And the two combined assure the top competition will show up.

    The local girls who visited the Dominican Republic last week on a mission trip through Score International tell a matching story.
    Toward the end of a visit to Pasitos de Jesus, a girls orphanage in Boca Chica, the children began singing the Gospel song “Mighty to Save” to their visitors.
    “It sent chills down your spine,” said Kala Franks, a rising senior at Coahulla Creek High School. “I felt they were ministering to me rather than us ministering to them.”

    When Northwest Whitfield repeated as the Georgia High School Association Class 4A softball state champion last fall, that appeared to be the last time the majority of the Lady Bruins’ senior class would be teammates on the diamond.
    Now, thanks to the Stump on Sports All-Star Softball Classic, five of those six seniors will reunite to play together one more time.

  • Isabel Salinas 5 mlh.jpg All-Area Spring Female Team: Salinas hoping things keep getting better and better with age

    Isabel Salinas’ freshman season for Southeast Whitfield High School’s track and field team wasn’t up to her standards, and she really isn’t sure why it ended up that way in 2013. It could have been her injuries. It could have been not being in proper shape.
    One thing Salinas, nicknamed “Izzy” by friends and coaches, does know is that her sophomore year went a lot better.

    Before there were any attempts in the high jump finals Thursday at the Class 3A boys track and field state high school meet at Jefferson High School’s Memorial Stadium, there was some trash talking.
    Coahulla Creek assistant coach Eric Bishop said one of the competitors approached top-seeded Josh Foxx, a Coahulla Creek junior, and told Foxx he was about to run into a wolf.

    VARNELL — Just as in other matches this season, there were handshakes and hugs awaiting the members of Coahulla Creek High School’s boys tennis team as they walked off the court Monday.
    Unfortunately for the Colts, this time they were of the comforting rather than the congratulating variety.

    TUNNEL HILL — When you consider all of the hours of practice, all of the years of gymnastics training and the physical demands of being a cheerleader, the last word you would expect to hear an athlete use to describe herself is “lazy.”

  • Creek girls fall short at Oconee Co.

    In 2013, Coahulla Creek’s girls high school tennis team saw their season end on the road at Oconee County in the first round of the Class 3A state tournament.
    Friday in the second round of this year’s tournament, the Lady Warriors again were the team to end the Coahulla Creek season, taking a 3-0 win in Watkinsville. But coach Matt Facey hopes the second-round loss means the Lady Colts will advance at least to the state quarterfinals next season.
